    ==" not a person can provide comparisons at all? lol..

    I used z slash before so I can give a brief comparisons (not accurate):

    First of all, the main differences of shiden and z slash is obviously the weight of the racket. Shiden is a light and more even balanced racket, and z-slash is a head heavy racket. Shiden is more suitable in doubles game because it is light, swing speed is fast and easy to maneuver. Z-slash would be more suitable for singles because of the heaviness.

    Another difference is the feel when hitting the shuttles. Shiden produce a *ping* sound when you hit the shuttle. My guess is because of the frame shape and faster swing speed to cut through the air that generate that sound. I could easily generate more power using Shiden than Z-Slash. I am not sure whats the reason but I'm guessing it's the string that affected me. I string my shiden with bg80 and my friend's z-slash had bg65 on at 1 or 2 lbs lower than mine.

    In my opinion, I think that Shiden is easier to adjust to compare to z-slash. Z-slash is not hard to use but need some time to adjust to it. When i used z slash for the first time, I couldnt generate enough power and proper control. For intermediate players who have less power, I recommend you start with Shiden first. However, it is all up to your preferences.

    Feel free to ask me any questions if I can help

    By the way, the z-slash i used before was the taufik hidayat version. I might get my friend to play badminton with me again, so I can try and write more reviews about it.

    I've tried the ZSlash once before using the Shiden... I wasn't fully able to exploit the full potential of the ZSlash... It was hard to use...

    But my experience with the Shiden is absolutely MAGNIFICENT! I will not buy a Yonex racket after getting my Shiden. One of the biggest grippe I have with my other Yonex rackets (AT900PLC and VT80) is that the shaft feels somewhat flexy. After a really hard smash, the shaft seems to be soft for a while. Making the rackets somewhat unpredictable for me.

    The Shiden allowed me to perform consistent hard and fast smashes repeatedly without going soft. Trying to sell my VT80 so I can use the money towards a second Shiden.
